Action against Disease ModelAlfuzosinAlfuzosin significantly prolonged action potential duration (APD)(60) in rabbit Purkinje fibers (p < 0.05) and QT in isolated rabbit hearts (p < 0.05) at the clinically relevant concentration of 300 nM. In man, the QT interval corrected with Fridericia's formula increased 7.7 ms, which exceeds the 5.0-ms threshold for a positive TCQS. Effects on hK(v)11.1, hK(v)4.3, and hK(v)7.1/hKCNE1 potassi uM currents and calci uM current were not involved. At 300 nM, approximately 30x C(max), alfuzosin significantly increased whole-cell peak sodi uM (hNa(v)1.5) current (p < 0.05), increased the probability of late hNa(v)1.5 single-channel openings, and significantly shortened the slow time constant for recovery from inactivation.[33]
